comment Ubuntu crashes with high memory use without swapping
I've had similar issue while swappiness at value of 5. I've changed that to 10 and the system is no more freezing, however it can choke after a while from startup and Chrome surfing (4 GB RAM here). I guess in my case the system was unable to engage swap from a point of too high RAM usage, Yours of 99% may be fatal.

comment How to automatically mute on headphones disconnect? Or how to tap bash script to system event listener?
Thanks... I'm seeing only S/PDIF column. Your last paragraph's solution works so far but is not automatic. I want speakers to be always muted after headphones disconnection, dependless on previous setting.

Other Ubuntu comp is driven by iwl3945 not as mine ath9k. And there is 13 Mb/s same network while 50 strength and I'm having 2-3 Mb/s with 83+ strength. It's rather not interference because I had same low speed while stronger & close channel networks were not broadcasting.

This is why I have mentioned about 2 more comps with 40 Mb/s on same router and channel. Also no difference while closer to router. I can change the channel (tried 4 based on other networks) but this is not applied since still goes on 11 and when I restart the router with channel 4 set, I can not connect at all... Few times spent a while on resetting router back to Auto channel = 11.

Normally I'm ~ 10 meters away. Anyway signal strength seems not to be an issue as gradually closer to router & higher signal did not change the speed.

comment windows 8.1 and ubuntu cant load dual boot option
Beware as wrong BIOS settings are dangerous. You may need to change BIOS settings boot mode from UEFI to LEGACY. The first one will not allow Ubuntu to load. If Your case is one of commons. You enter BIOS by pressing F2 or other key (should be shown for a second or so) after power on.
